Photography Forum for Beginners

Sunday, August 8th, 2004 at 1220

Some of you already know about this so this post is for those of you I don’t know and haven’t already told.
Ok, I’ll get to the point.
A while back I played around with a pre-built forum system called SMF (Simple Machines Forum), it was an absolute doozy to set up but as with all forums an utter swine to skin / theme / change to look like my website. Which is why it uses the default colours.

Anyway, the forum is for amateur and beginner photographers to huddle together for warmth, share advice and experiences and occasionally put up photos for everyone else to rip to pieces all in the name of constructive criticism. Oh, there’s also fortnightly “projects” so that some people with expensive camera gear are actually encouraged to go out and use it.


You do need to register to view certain sections and upload images, if things get popular I’ll insist on people hosting images remotely and linking to them to preserve some precious webspace and bandwidth.

With no further ado, I give you the Amateur Photography Forum !

Some of you might wonder why I’ve bothered and not just gone to another community type site. One main reason is this started with a small bunch of friends and online people, the other is that some communities get very… odd, so I thought I’d just start my own :)
